Publications

A book I edited, Medusa’s Daughters: Magic and Monstrosity from Women Writers of the Fin-de-Si├Ęcle, came out from Lanternfish Press in 2020. It contains gothic, fantastical, and macabre poetry and short stories by women writers from the turn of the century, including Kate Chopin, Mary Coleridge, Vernon Lee, Willa Cather, E. Nesbit, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Edith Wharton, Charlotte Mew, and Virginia Wolfe.

The third book in The Extraordinary Adventures of the Athena Club, The Sinister Mystery of the Mesmerizing Girl, came out in 2019. It takes our heroines back to London, where they must rescue Alice, Mary’s kitchen maid. Why would anyone kidnap Alice? You will find out in the concluding adventures of the Athena Club.

My short story and poetry collection Snow White Learns Witchcraft: Stories and Poems came out from Mythic Delirium Books in 2019. All the short stories and poems in this collection are based on fairy tales, in one form or another, although my versions may be quite different from the ones you’re used to! The collection has an introduction by Jane Yolen and gorgeous cover art by Ruth Sanderson.
